A Reflection Upon Three “Crosses”
By Wayne Jackson

Several prophets indicated the manner of Christ’s death. David spoke of the Messiah’s “hands and feet” being “pierced” (Psalm 22:16). Isaiah announced that he would be “wounded” for our transgressions (53:5). Zechariah told of a day of grace when many within the Hebrew family would mourn over him whom they had “pierced.” He further added that in “that day” a “fountain” would be opened for “sin and uncleanness” (12:11ff; 13:1).

In addition, there were subtle prophetic hints that Jesus’ death would be cast into the mold of a criminal. This thought is implied when the prophet foretold that the “grave” of Jehovah’s “servant” would be “with the wicked,” and that he would be “numbered with transgressors” (Isaiah 53:9,12). Jesus specifically declared this latter prophecy was to be “fulfilled” ultimately in him (Luke 22:37).

It is important, therefore, for the Bible student to not only look at the circumstances pertaining to the Lord’s death, but likewise to the details of the two crucified men that died on the same occasion. There are valuable lessons to be learned from all three deaths.
